During a busy point in his career around 1960, Enevoldsen played tenor with 
Ray Anthony's big band, bass with Bobby Troupe's quartet, valve bone with 
Terry Gibbs on the Steve Allen Show, wrote charts for & played valve trombone 
with Shelly Manne, also for the Lighthouse allstars. He also gave music 
lessons in his garage studio at home. I just knew him as the man my mother 
dropped me off to see for music lesons. I had no idea how talented he was. I 
saw him again about two years ago & introduced myself; he was playing solo 
bone with the Bill Holman big band (at maybe age 80). When I mentioned all 
this to him, he pointed out he also played flute and some other string 
instrument (I think viola). He also asked me about my mom. What a guy!
